There weren't that many people there and there's not much reporting on this but I thought it was pretty damn funny. Andrew Breitbart was speaking before Sarah Palin came on at the capitol today, and he was so tired of being drowned out by boos that he screamed "GO TO HELL!" four times fast and then snarled before he introduced Palin. And then she proceeded to get bombarded twice as badly. They should have known what they were getting themselves into coming here. Clowns.

I was so excited when I got back from seeing Palin and wrote this that I forgot to include some background info. This was the Saturday 4/16/11 Koch Brothers Americans For Prosperity Tax Day Tea Party at the State Capitol in Madison, Wisconsin. Progressives outnumbered baggers by an incredible margin. I've heard 20 to 1 as the most common guess so far.

The 20:1 progressives:tea party ratio was a guess from people at the rally and was not an official estimate by any authority. Just to be clear on that.Updated by Librul in Madison at Sat Apr 16, 2011 at 05:11 PM PDT
More on the crowd-
To find the fenced-off tea party crowd you have to use this smaller zoomed in picture that's been circulating on Twitter:
Here's a zoomed out aerial version from a local tv station, where the vast majority of everyone visible is a counter protester:
